Inside the Rod Blagojevich investigation and related cases

Blagojevich: Play all the tapes, impeachment was a sham, etc.

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Rod Blagojevich now is hitting all of the same points we've heard in the past:

His 2009 impeachment was a sham, he says, because he couldn't call witnesses without approval.
That's not quite true, lawmakers have said.
He couldn't call some witnesses -- those included Rahm Emanuel and Valerie Jarrett -- whom federal investigators said were involved in their criminal investigation.
Blagojevich did give a prepared statement at that impeachment proceeding.

"Play all the tapes," he then told students. Blagojevich goes over his press conference
from a couple of weeks ago when he said he wouldn't try to bar secret recordings of himself in court. He said he wanted them all played.

Blagojevich now rips on House Speaker Michael Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton as being part of the deadlock in Springfield.

Blagojevich then went on about his efforts to bring health care to children.

"That was the morality and the ethics of my years as governor," he closed.
You know what their response was, he asked? "No comment."
